Rush for Glory is a relatively short and relatively sweet little tower defense game. With only 5 towers and 10 levels, a handful of abilities, simple map structure, and minimally varied enemies: don’t expect this game to revolutionize the genre. Nevertheless, for anyone looking for a new and solid tower defense game this will probably do the trick, for a little while at least.

There are various difficulty levels which can (and should) be played in ascending order which essentially expands the 10 levels to 30. The reason you will probably want to play through the campaign 3 separate times at each difficulty is because whenever you do very well in a level you will be given a “star,” which you can use to upgrade your towers and abilities in the meta-game. Upgrading your towers and abilities will then allow you to do very well in the levels at the next difficulty, thus earning you more stars. You get the idea.

The store page claims there is an “elaborate techtree,” which there is not. There are no branching options; you simply use stars to upgrade basic stats for each tower and ability (i.e.: range, damage, fire rate). The upgrades are not permanent, so you can shuffle them around depending on what strategy you want to use for each level.

One cool feature is the way your “lives” are calculated. Most tower defense games give you a certain number of lives for each level, and it will be the same each time. This is not the case in Rush for Glory. Instead, you have a pool of lives that is maintained across all levels. You can also accumulate a surplus of lives to a point where you will be able to beat any level easily— however, if you lose many lives in one level you won’t be earning any “stars” for upgrades.

There are also minigames which are basically levels where you can only use limited towers and abilities. The minigames are best utilized to stockpile a surplus of lives for the real levels.

In summary, Rush for Glory is certainly a typical and simple tower defense game. It doesn’t really bring anything fresh or different to the genre, except maybe for the cross-level-lives mechanic. If you are looking for a solid tower defense game that you haven’t played yet, this is probably worth a shot. If you are looking for the best tower defense game you have played in years, then look elsewhere.

I think it's a great little game. Ended up paying around 40p for it on ♥♥♥ and it seems solid. It's fun, there's plenty of levels, the soundtrack is awesome and it's pretty to look at.

It's not defining or anything. It doesn't try and be different but it does what it does well.

I've played this game for like half an hour, at first I didn't really think I would be playing it but oh boy, how I was wrong. Normally I hate strategy games but this one is unique, and I love it.
